And so, Yahoo Shopping sent our feelers and chatted with the founder, Ms. Petra Strand herself, about her five favorite PIXI products, her recommendations for those new to the brand and, of course, beauty tips for our dear readers. . .

And by the way, check out our awesome TikTok account @Yahoosea and hang out with our awesome Yahoo TikTok team!

It all started at the founder’s humble kitchen table 23 years ago, born out of Strand’s need to find skin-loving multitasking skincare products at an accessible price. As a busy mother of four, Strand wanted skincare products that were functional and effective but didn’t take a lot of time. Countless trial and error and just her love of experimenting with skincare products led her to break through with what is now called Pixi. Through the philosophy of bringing out its natural beauty, Pixi’s use of natural ingredients fused with cutting-edge technology and product development has led to its cult status. Not only that, the skin and planet friendly brand is also inclusive and created for all ages and skin types.

I have one in my bag and one at my desk to vape throughout the day. It is light but leaves your skin and even your hair luminous and radiant. It’s very nourishing, refreshing, and perfect for spritzing on all day, even with makeup on.

These must-have hydrogel eye patches instantly revive and refresh the under-eye area. You can also store them in the fridge for an extra deflating and soothing effect.

This lightweight gel formula is water-based, so you feel like you’re wearing nothing on your skin while providing beautiful coverage. It evens skin tone and improves complexion for a fresh face, your skin only better.

A little of that blush is the quickest way to look awake. I sweep this over my cheeks and dab a little on my lips, and I look instantly pulled together.

Can you share some tips and tricks on how we can achieve flawless skin?

My advice for achieving flawless skin is to make daily maintenance a habit. Skin responds well to long-term maintenance, so the best thing you can do is have an effective routine where you cleanse, tone, treat, and moisturize regularly. Make sure you get in the habit of doing this when you’re young, then it will become part of your daily routine.

What are the best-selling Pixi products that you would recommend to those new to the brand?

Luminous tonic is a fantastic place to start. The glycolic acid in the formula is a small molecule that works fast, delivering fast results. This is my favorite acid for immediate and long term results.

Glow Mud Cleanser helps maintain impeccably clean skin – it’s like a daily skin detox. I also use it as a detox mask for 5 minutes in the shower before massaging with a washcloth.

Pink Ceramide Cream is instantly nourishing and leaves the skin with a glassy texture. It’s packed with botanical extracts to keep skin perfectly balanced.

Endless Silky Eye Pen is richly pigmented, so buttery in texture and long lasting. It is a smudge-proof, non-travel waterproof formula. It’s perfect for hassle-free eye makeup and warm climates because it stays put and never melts.
